Hizen and Strassbourg have potential.

 

Z-44 might be interesting.

 

As for the other two, time will tell.

Wow, best dev blog in a long time with a lot of interesting ships. Personally I'm really hyped for Plymouth. Finally a Premium for those who like the british Cls. Pls don't mess her up WG :)

If nothing else I'm interested in Plymouth for her name alone, she's quite nice looking too

Some Nice Ships on show, I'm just not going to get exited about the British Cruiser as much as I'd like to specialy looking at whats happening at the moment, Strasebourg could be a Very Nice T7 but a long way to go through the Nerfing process yet.

10/10 for Art Graphics

I had hoped you would reserve Strasbourg for an alternative Tech Tree. Just another premium is a bit boring

The current version is nearly a copy&paste version of Dunk. I doubt that you incorporated the differences of Strasbourg into the model (she was an improved version) and Reload Booster does not make her Tier VII.

Hizen looks interesting, although it is clear that this threatening salvo is tempered by 28knt speed and range. She has an AP shell better than Amagis but worse than Izumos. I am curious about her armor scheme, will she have the resistant deck of Musashi and Izumo?

 

Z44 as a tier 9... this is just the same as Z35 and makes just as little sense as that did when it was proposed for tier 9. Not only that but it is absolutely boring and seems incredibly lazy.
Why this? Why another 1936B trying to fit in at tier 9? It makes no sense.

Hull of a tier 7, guns of a tier 7, torps of a stock tier 7, but the torps are 2x5 instead of 2x4, and with +4km range and -5s reload does not make the ship suitable for tier 9 especially when this also costs it hydro.

And no, giving it 7 of those new 30mm quad AA guns from Pommern is not interesting either. 365 AA dps with 3km range may as well not even exist.

Nonsense, this ship is a joke.

Type 1942C Destroyer Z51 perhaps?

Type 1938A Destroyer which brings 150mm guns to tier 9 (just like Z39 does at tier 7)?

Spahkreuzer?

 

Strasbourg at last, and at least you bothered to give her a different model rather than just copy paste Dunkerque and ignore the differences. If only you cared as much about Littorio.

As a fan of Dunk I look forward to her sister.

 

Plymouth is interesting. Only 2/3rd of Minotaurs DPM and no Specialised Repair Team. Only 4 torps each side. 7°/sec turret traverse. Only 14.3km range. She certainly has a lot of disadvantages compared to Minotaur.

But, smoke and radar and hydro simultaneously could prove advantageous, and I suspect her ballistics will be better than Minos.

I'm not sure if there is any historical precedent for this ship and frankly I would much rather see Swiftsure added (and Belfast 1943 should really be Sheffield) but I guess this is ok for now.

 

Mysore. A Fiji at tier 6. This seems like a really bad idea. Better than a stock Fiji, with an incredible turning circle, better concealment, crawling smoke.

If you had no taken the torpedos away I would have considered it an absolutely ridiculous concept. But I still fear this ship will prove too strong.
EDIT: has been pointed out to me Mysore also has just 3 turrets and isn't overmatched by 203mm AP which is quite a substantial difference.

Hizen looks Interesting.

But alot depends on the Armor Sheme.

 

Z44 is meh.

Not Bad. But also nothing Special.

Its another *allrounder* which basicly is a Polite way of saying its not really Great at anything and whatever you do there is a better choice.

 

Plymouth somehow seems to be another Minotaur..

 

Strassbourg is a T7 Dunker ^^

 

And the other one seems to basicly be a Fiji ^^

Do we really have to scrape the barrel with the Royal Navy by throwing up a slap dash CL, you have a wide selection of plausible ways to continue the Edinburgh play style. HMS Swiftsure with slightly better reload and replace either smoke or Radar for a heal for example instead of a quad abomination that carries radar and smoke. I get that dev requires player to splash out but a little though goes a long way.

Mysore is 3x3, not 4x3, so there's that. Though, worth noting also, 16 mm plating, not 13 mm, so it at least has the armour of a normal T6 cruiser, not of a RN one.

the Z-44 looks to be an attempt at a KM Benham copy. However the lack of hydro and terrible concealment make it much worse. Either give it reasonable concealment or give it hydro for self defense ...

 And now they are introducing a tier 10 belfast. :Smile_facepalm:

And an other question to WG. Why does she only have AP? I mean smolensk has HE. When it comest to british cls, they are unfun to play against if they have HE. When it comes to smolensk, nah everything is fine...

Mysore lacks one turret compared to Fiji as well.

Good spot, that one less turret makes a considerable difference. I'm not sure I really understand why she has 16mm though, she really shouldn't need it and Fiji has 13mm.

Nice. I'm definitely looking forward to pretty much all of those new ship. Especially Hizen. :Smile_honoring: Originally she was the Russian Battleship Retvizan, sunk we Port Arthur, she was recovered by the Japanese and renamed Hizen

doesnt matter. their justification for taking away HE from mino wasnt about radar. it was exactly like this: "its not a fun experience to play against ships with smoke and rapid HE shooting guns." thats why mino lost her HE shells. then we got smolensk... which shouldnt be in game if you look at their OWN justification. and now there is another ship with smoke but she doesnt get HE. dont get me wrong tho. Having radar and smoke is a stupid combination and shouldnt be in game. but that wasnt my point. the point is the double standart between smolensk and british CLs.

No heal most likely the answer... 

 

Afaik Perth also has 16mm compared to Leander.
